Akron (0-2) vs Bryant (1-1) Game Preview
Why Bryant Will Win
The Bulldogs stuffed Sacred Heart last week – helped by three picks – and with a running game that did a great job behind a strong offensive front.
They might have been crushed by Rhode Island to start the season, but they’ve got enough options to keep things moving a bit against an Akron defense that hasn’t been close so far at stopping anyone’s passing game.
There’s no pressure into the backfield and the run D is allowing close to 250 yards per game. At the very least, Bryant should be able to generate a bit of a push.
Why Akron Will Win
Bryant doesn’t score.
It couldn’t keep up against Rhode Island and despite getting the ground game going, it only put up 17 against Sacred Heart.
There’s no passing attack to worry about, there’s no deep threat who can stretch the field, and Akron should be able control the clock and the game from the start.
It’s been a rough start against Auburn and Temple, but the passing attack hasn’t been too bad. This week, though …
What’s Going To Happen
Here comes the program’s second win since late October of 2018 with the running game that’s finally going to get some room to breathe.
The Zips showed a few signs of life last week in the loss to Temple, and now the program gets to finally have a little fun. Not a lot, but it’ll be a win for a team in desperate need of any positive momentum.
